Health Effects of 9/11

Doorway leading to Health Effects of 9/11 exhibition in museum

September 11, 2023 – April 23, 2024

More than 20 years after 9/11, thousands continue to be diagnosed with physical and mental health conditions as a result of their exposure to dust, smoke, debris, and the traumatic events. Tragically, experts predict that these adverse health effects will continue for many decades to come.

This exhibition, developed by the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program in partnership with the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, examines the ongoing health effects linked to 9/11 exposures and the emergence of WTC-related health conditions. It also explores the events and advocacy that established the WTC Health Program and research achievements that have led to improvements in medical treatment and knowledge.

There is also an online version of this exhibition.
